Niantic, the Pokemon Go Company
Trinidad Hermida is Niantic’s first Diversity and Inclusion Program Manager. Niantic specializes in augmented reality and is known world over as “the Pokemon Go Company,” for creating the world’s most popular augmented reality game. Niantic, which also brought us Google Earth and Google Maps, is launching the much-anticipated game “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite” later this year. Niantic’s current focus is on inclusion and creating a social community for gamers. After several years working as a product manager with Dell Computers, Trinidad discovered how to embrace both her creative genes and corporate lessons to benefit this generation. Since joining Niantic last December she has brought expertise and passion in championing burgeoning diversity initiatives. She believes that by “setting a standard of incorporating everyone’s genius, we can change the game.” Follow @thisistrini to hear about everything from pop culture to technology and everything in between (music, diversity, fashion, virtual/augmented reality, life, religion/spirituality, and realtionships).
